ITF Lauds Ports of Auckland Undertaking

Press Release
Wednesday, March 21, 2012

ITF President Paddy Crumlin lauded Ports of Auckland’s undertaking to halt plans to make nearly 300 dock workers redundant, cease outsourcing operations, and re-enter negotiations with the Maritime Union of New Zealand.
 
“This really is a victory for common sense, and a ringing endorsement of MUNZs decision to resist the port company’s plans and challenge them in law,” said Crumlin.  “The workers and their union have been sincere all along in seeking a negotiated settlement. If the company can genuinely match that willingness – and prove that they are committed to a negotiated solution – then an end to this dispute and the damage it has done to the port’s reputation could be within reach.”
